Here again we see the complete disconnect between what the enemedia and left-wing authoritarians want you to believe and what is real. The enemedia was all over President Trump’s cautionary remarks concerning Sweden’s disastrous migration policy, attacking him for telling the truth.
They will not be all over this news story.
Sweden Democrats: Trump was right
Two leading Swedish politicians have a message for President Trump’s critics: He’s right.
Per Jimmie Akesson and Mattias Karlsson, both leaders of the Sweden Democrats, penned a Wall Street Journal op-ed on Wednesday supporting Trump’s characterization of a Muslim immigrant-led crime crisis in Sweden.
“Mr. Trump did not exaggerate Sweden’s current problems,” Akesson and Karlsson wrote. “If anything, he understated them.”
Trump was ridiculed by many after he gave a speech Saturday citing Sweden among a list of European countries affected by the scourge of Islamic terror. Referring to the massive number of Middle Eastern refugees that have poured into the country, Trump said Sweden was “having problems like they never thought possible.” Some Swedish politicians openly derided Trump’s portrayal of the country – but riots in the heavily Muslim neighborhood of Malmo on Monday evening put an end to most of the mockery.
“Riots and social unrest have become a part of everyday life,” Akesson and Karlsson wrote. “Police officers, firefighters and ambulance personnel are regularly attacked. Serious riots in 2013, involving many suburbs with large immigrant populations, lasted for almost a week. Gang violence is booming. Despite very strict firearms laws, gun violence is five times as common in Sweden, in total, as in the capital cities of our three Nordic neighbors combined.”
They added: “Anti-Semitism has risen. Jews in Malmo are threatened, harassed and assaulted in the streets. Many have left the city, becoming internal refugees in their country of birth.”
The Sweden Democrats duo ended the op-ed with a warning for the United States.
“For the sake of the American people,” Akesson and Karlsson wrote, “with whom we share so many strong historical and cultural ties, we can only hope that the leaders in Washington won’t make the same mistakes that our socialist and liberal politicians did.”
After Trump highlighted the problems mass migration brings, further rioting broke out in Sweden:
- President Donald Trump claimed Sweden was in the midst of immigration crisis
- On Monday, a riot broke out in the deprived Rinkeby suburb of capital Stockholm
- Young men set fire to cars, threw stones at police and looted shops in the area
- Teenage boy with long criminal record who was on the run sparked the riots
- The suburb – where nine out of ten residents are immigrants – is rife with crime
- Youths openly deal heroin and other narcotics inside near the only train station
- ‘Perhaps Trump was right after all,’ a police officer in Rinkeby told MailOnline
The Stockholm suburb that was hit by violent riots on Monday is a police no-go zone where cars are torched almost every day, gangs rule the streets and fire engines have to be fitted with bulletproof glass.
Residents of rundown Rinkeby, where nine out of ten residents are immigrants, have spoken out about how they live in fear, as Swedish politicians and police officers admitted that ‘Trump was right’.
‘The situation is here is terrible,’ one resident said. ‘I am scared most of the time when I leave my apartment. I have been assaulted twice and robbed once since I moved to Rinkeby. The criminal gangs can do what they want.
‘What happened on Monday night is just the tip of the iceberg. Gangs control this whole area. There are riots every evening and the police can do nothing to contain the situation.’Read more here
